This is all strange information for me. I have never seen or heard Ghamdi apprciating that kind of nonsense stuff. Most of the time, he seems to make sense although at times he does use Hadith of his chosing to make his argument. I don't agree with him all the time but I think he is the best lot among the orthodox camp. He is certainly closer to us than most others in his world. One of the things I did not like about him was his ridicule for Allama G. A. Parwez!
